It seems the YouTube channels of many sports teams have become a portal for what the organizations hope to become comedy networks that distribute viral gold and in most cases every video that features any pro athlete will have a decent digital reach but many times these videos are just rushed parodies that aren’t very well executed. The Atlanta Hawk’s “Blurred Lines Code of Conduct” is a good example of a video that works conceptually but the final product is as tired as the autotune sound they incorporated.
It’s hard to complain about the cheerleaders in the video but they just can’t compete with Emily Ratajkowski who was the real star of Robin Thicke’s Marvin Gaye rip. Emily actually has a role in David Fincher’s new film and if you haven’t seen her latest photoshoot with Jonathan Leder then you might want to Google it.
Back to the NBA videos, I think the Dallas Mavs have been doing a decent job making parody videos but then again, it’s hard to go wrong and not be funny when you have Dirk.
